Sep 2016

That day was raining, but we didnt mind because we were overwhelmed in the changing of the guard. I love to live in this country. Beautiful!!!

Oct 2016

Not a big fan of this tour. it's super basic because you get the same information as if you were to get one of those 2 day tour buses but at half the price and twice the amount of time. And the time spent at the changing of the guard was barely 15 minutes, when the whole ceremony lasts 1.5 hours. Also, the guide placed us all the way to the back of the area, where we weren't able to see anything of the actual ceremony, only a few guards that passed by the street on their way in to the main plaza. And the cruise, the bus leaves you about 5 blocks from where you are supposed to get the boat. So i wouldn't recommend this to anyone. you are better off getting a Big Bus pass or any of those tour buses, and walking yourself early to Buckingham Palace to see the change of guard and place yourself at the front.
